on basketball players to make sure they don't trash talk on the court. "fox & friends" starts now. >>steve: we're like carmelo anthony right now because people have microphones on us to hear what we're going to say. >>eric: make sure we don't do trash talking during the breaks. crazy. >>gretchen: i don't know if it's crazy or not. i guess we'll debate it. it all stems from carmelo anthony and kevin garnett when they got into it. maybe this is a way to try to curb some of that trash talking which is essential if you're a basketball player. i understand. it's an essential part of the game nobody talks about. >>eric: when you start calling somebody's wife a serial, you have crossed the line to say it. >>gretchen: let's talk about politics because there is no trash talking in politics. we all know that; right? back in september of 2006, i think it was, president obama -- and 2008, by the way -- when he was a senator, he talked a lot about the debt ceiling. remember, president bush was in office at the time, so senator obama would probably be against some of the things he was talking about, particu
to steve. >> a beautiful sunrise here. a few high clouds. i know it's cold. man, it hurts. hurts. temperatures in the 20s. more 20s than yesterday. it doesn't happen if you are inland. it can help downslope, the offshore breeze will help the bay. frost and freeze warnings are out. those higher clouds coming down out of the north. northeast. so that's the direction the wind is coming from. that's what gives us a little bit of that high cloud cover. there's actually some warm temperatures up in alaska. there's more of this in arizona and nevada. yesterday, there was a lot more of a breeze. when the wind is calm, the temperature drops down. that's what you are getting. fairfield, 26. brentwood, 29. concord, 29. walnut creek, 28. livermore/pleasanton, upper 20s. santa rosa, 28. napa, 28. 38 half moon bay. not far away i've seen 32. redwood city says 35. san jose, 33. campbell, santa clara, upper 20s. woodside also upper 20s and there is a bunch in the mountains. you need more cloud cover and kind of a west wind. we're not getting that. it will stay cold but that helps areas around oa
good and in the south bay there are no accidents or stalls. 5:06 let's go to steve. >>> well i just tweeted this out, anchorage alaska is 31, burbank is 34 with an east wind at 22 miles per hour so it is warmer in anchorage than many locations down here. i think i saw scottsdale was 25. cold patchy frost, freeze warn being are out and it is going to be here. maybe early the end of the month and until then, very cold mornings and we will start to see this cold air modified. it helps coast and bay and there is a 32 in anchorage and it looks like they will park it over the west coast. 20 for fairfield. i know it is closer to napa and menlo park. we have lost that breeze and there is a little component of an east shore breeze. it is definitely dry. temperatures 50s for some, low mid-and i don't want to say upper yet. it is getting close for oakland and 52 livermore and it is a complete flip flop from six months ago. temperatures are starting to come up coast and bay and we will hold that right into the weekend. >>> steve let go to a car parked near a college campus. tara moriarty just a
. >> thank you for joining us this morning, steve is here and san francisco is warmer but they are usually the coldest, right? >> that is the coldest i can find but the marina is 309. this is -- 39. that is cold for the marina. it is just holding on and there are a lot of 20s and 30s this morning and now livermore is in there concord fairfield santa rosa, it will be slightly warmer around the bay with an east wind. here is sal. >>> good morning, 101 approaching the 880 split and san francisco no major problems there also it looks good if you are driving on the san mateo bridge and heading out to the high-rise. let's go back to the desk. >>> right now crews from several fire agencies are putting out hot spots. it started shortly before 4:00 a.m. this morning along a vacant building in the city of crocket. ktvu channel 2 morning news bringing you pictures and they are calling this fire suspicious since nobody lives in that area. alex savage is on the scene getting some new information for us and he will have a live update in the next half hour. >>> live in sonoma, a body found inside the ca
at the weather with steve paulson. >>> we are talking about black ice this morning. it is cold enough for it. >> yes, yesterday we had it and chp has not reported it yet but we will be on the lookout for that. let's look at these pictures, people are on the road early, no major problems driving to the toll plaza. no problems getting onto the span and the road work we see around the bay has not caused any major delays on the bridge. also northbound 280 and also southbound 280, 4:36 let's go to steve. >>> all right, sal, another cold one, temperatures dipping into the 20s and 30s and by the north bay, already at this time, we had some things that held up and a few high clouds coming down, you can see it coming right down over northeast california and it looks like they are taking aim towards the north bay. 30s and 20s and mild air to the north, it will eventually give air over us. lakeport 30, calistoga 30, walnut creek already 29, 30 in san ramon. 30s saratoga is at 30 and gilroy already 27 degrees and 30 menlo park and 30 in foster city, very cool at 31 degrees. you can see those higher clou
hard to get steve jobs back, so i have that going against them. rehabilitating when they were on the floor that introduced all of these products including the iphone in 2007. the iphone do not have much competition for the first few years after it was introduced. the first android phones from google were not that good, but the combination is very powerful and apple just as proof how fast things can happen is just how fast iphone five sales have slowed down. david: this is an epic business story. books will be written of how apple lost this extraordinary lead they had with a few months ago they would not lose for years, if ever. what is the lesson, what did they do wrong? thinking they could do no wrong? or what? >> that is a great question, david. steve jobs said something very valuable in the next 90s interview when he was out of apple telling the apple executives not to be greedy and live on high margin products because it would not last. you can substitute iphone for mackintosh and the same thing would be true today. they thought they could live in a world they could dictat
any public comment on item no. 7? area codes. >> no. >> welcome steve. >> thank you. i think commissioner ortiz had the right idea. cell phones seem to be proliferating all over the place. why don't all new cell phones have the new area code? i get people's business codes that have 415 for their business and some other area code for their cell phone. it's quite common. and i think also what happens is a lot of people from san francisco take their 415 number. my two children live in san diego now, but their cell phones are still 415 down there. so i think it would be very easy for any business to add a cell phone with a different area code, and maintain that phone number that they have always had as 415. i think that is the right idea going forward. thank you. >> thank you. any other members of the public that would like to comment on item no. 7? seeing none, item no. 7 is closed. commissioners? >> well number portability is also legislated that you are allowed to take your number with you. i don't think we want to make any recommendations that discusses number portabilit
in today's "closing bell" exchange by hank smith and steve from comcast funds and our own rick santelli. >> hello. >> good to see you guys. >> thank you so much for joining us. >> hank smith, we haven't heard from you in a while. let me kick this off with you. how are you investing going into all of these earnings coming out from the banks this week as ahead of that debt ceiling debate? >> sure, maria. our equity portfolios are fully invested. we see no reason 2013 can't deliver very similar returns as 2012 did. the fact is we still have a good fundamental backdrop. the economy is expanding. it's not contracting or growing. value sheets are strong and valuations are very attractive so what is there not to like? >> you're our resident skeptic today, and i would point not to the normal averages that we quote every day, but look at the dow transportation average which could close at an all-time high today. the transportation companies, often a leading indicator for the economy. if they are doing well. chances are the economy is going to get better. wouldn't that make you want to buy stocks
but economically the ceiling has the capacity to deliver far more damage. you are talking like my friend steve kornacki here. what is failing to raise the debt ceiling? why is that going to be catastrophic? >> well, you know, first of all the stock and bond markets will really go haywire in a way they didn't when we were about to go over the fiscal cliff because government bonds are held by everybody. chinese central bank, japanese central bank, every single bank financial institution out there. so if there's any question over the value of those and they start to decline, these institutions have a great amount of leverage and interconnected with everything else and sort of see what happened in 2008. it's also this issue of, you know, who gets paid? if you start to have to say maybe soldiers get paid but not paying for the fuel or these doctors will get paid, you know, government is a huge force in our economy. like it or not. and the number of companies that would really be affected from walmart to every defense contractor to giant health care companies, if their ability to collect money that
and park department. it's my incredible pleasure and honor to introduce you are mfac award winner, steve, ste castil. >> i would like to thank spur and mfac. thank you for this honor. being selected to receive such a prestigious award is such a great honor, but i think even greater considering all the top candidates. when i graduated from uc-davis, i learned the theory of being a manager. i needed something to show the reality but i quickly learned the best way to acquire these skills was to watch and work with senior managers in the rec and park department. i've been fortunate to work with three outstanding managers. they were instrumental in my growth as a manager. i thank them. another ingredient needed to be a successful manager is to have a great team. my supervisory team -- may have been instrumental in the golf and turf operations by completing tasks to the highest standards possible of any group of people i've ever seen. i would also like to thank the gardening staff, the teamsters, the operating engineers, everyone who makes my operation possible, even down to the local vendors
about winn? nonetheless, steve wynn has put a lot of resources into macau, the vegas of china. things are getting better over there. i think wynn's a buy. then there's companies like boeing, which rallied despite terrible press. all of these companies that expanded rapidly around the globe and they have been roaring despite no research-oriented news that would make you feel all warm and fuzzy about the numbers. you can even consider dell part of this trend. yes, dell, the big service company that has been hurt by this rapid expansion at a time when no one trusted overseas markets. now dell might actually go private. ♪ hallelujah and it would make sense because half of dell's revenue comes from overseas. big companies with exposure to europe is doing terrifically. both have been kept back by worries. both ceos have said over and over, it's an issue. how about ford and general motors? have you seen these two? ford may have the best chart in the book. it's screaming. company doubled its dividend and getting european losses under control while china and latin america turned the corner.
it. so we've soeen it before. >> and i agree with steve on that, he has the audacity to disagree with me somewhat. i actually think the republicans looked at the fiscal cliff, they passed the senate bill, said it is up to you. they basically blinked and said we don't want to go over the cliff. so they know they don't really have it will them to want to default on the debt ceiling. the landscape is different from 2011, yes, they're still nutty and responding to that calculus. i don't think they're quite as credible in terms of actually causing a default. and take what? social security and medicare benefit cuts, that is tremendously unpopular, it would be a disaster. but also a catastrophe for the republican party. >> and this comes at a moment where they're being criticized from kind of all sides. i want to listen to something colin powell said yesterday about their identity problem. >> i think the republican party right now is having an identity problem. and i am still a republican. i think what the republican party needs to do right now, take a hard look at itself. the country i
low amid weak consumer reports for the iphone 5. down from its high of more than $700. steve, what gives? after a poor fourth quarter, apple was supposed to turn it around here in the new year. >> yeah. i mean, let's get this in perspective. they've still got 15% of the world's smartphone market, that's up from the previous figure of 14%. the problem is these google androids. they're selling in greater quantities than apple's. you're right, the share price was 705 bucks back in september. at one point they had a $498 handle, back to $501. there's concern they're ordering less components, and that means they're expecting less sales in the first quarter of 2013. a little better news for dell, 13% as the struggling pc maker looks like it may well be in talks with a couple private equity guys to potentially take the company off the market and go private. >> steve, let me ask you about walmart. yesterday they announced their plans to hire any military veteran who wants a job. amazing story. how many jobs do they expect to give out? >> yeah, this could be 100,000 jobs over the next three
the president usurping the constitution. republican texas congressman steve stockman talks about impeaching the president if he takes steps to upgrade gun safety by executive order. remember sharron angle, the nevada republican senate candidate talking openly about using second amendment remedies against public officials. people used to think she was alone out there, something of an oddity. what's becoming clear is in today's gop she's more typical than not. ed rendell was governor of pennsylvania, michael steele was chair of the republican party. gentlemen, thank you. president obama will announce his plans for gun safety tomorrow after hearing vice president biden's task force recommendations, but already criticism is mounting on the right. here is republican senator rand paul of kentucky. >> i'm against having a king. i think having a monarch is what we fought the american revolution over, and someone who wants to bypass the constitution, bypass congress, that's someone who wants to act like a king or a monarch. i've been opposed to executive orders even with republican presidents, but o
" steve. will the gop once again play the role of dr. no? this version of the action-packed thriller would not involve threatening the launch of a u.s. spaceship wan atomic powered radio beam. instead, the victim would be the united states economy and the potentially disastrous impact of failing to raise the debt ceiling brsh according to speaker boehner, the ends justify the means. in a statement yesterday, boehner asserted the consequences of failing to increase the debt ceiling are real, but so, too, are the consequences of allowing our spending problem to go unresolved. it was a response to this stern warning from the president on monday. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. the financial well being of the american people is not leveraged to be used. >> if the tenor of the president's last press conference of his first term is any indication about what he expects in his second term, prepare for a bond-style showdown as the government barrels towards its borrowing limit. that said, there might exist a solution that would allow congress to
>> steve: you keep sending pictures of your furry friends, so we're going to show you when it's not so furry, it's fifi the iguana. look at that. a fan of "fox & friends." >> gretchen: oh, my gosh. >> steve: very nice. keep them coming. >> gretchen: dr. ian will stick around for the after the show show. around congress and enact new gun laws with executive order. vice president biden telling house democrats at least 19 of those actions are being prepped and will be implemented whether congress likes it are not. leads to the question, what are they. i'm bill hemmer. happy tuesday on america's news room. martha: i'm martha maccallum. these orders are more aggressive of current laws which a lot of people said is really the first place to start, or, they will try to get the centers for disease control to do some national research on firearms. bill: on the other side many argue, democrats and republican lawmakers, you need to look at more than just guns. >> this is a very important constitutional right and we are very dedicated to protecting the second amendment from that standpoin
in the panel. steve hayes for the "weekly standard." juan williams, columnist with the hill. syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. okay, steve. we saw earlier an amendment offered by south carolina's mick mulvaney to pay for $17 billion in disaster relief was shut down. now there is another effort to scale back the overall packag package. what about this debate and how it's playing out? >> it's a good debate. what we saw with the mulvane amendment was telling. republicans were voting 2 to 1 in favor of the amendment which would have taken the $17 billion and offset it by making $1.6% cut to discretionary spending across the board. that is a perfectly reasonablebe proposal. most republicans voting for it. what is discouraging you got so little real attention from democrats and it was criticized so heavily in such, i think a demagogic manner by some other republicans. you had hal rogers,be chairman of the house appropriations committee suggest that the cuts, 1.6% of discretionary spending, those cuts would be devastating slash and burn cu cuts. that is false. it wouldn't be. we can ha
pushing the more aggressive measures to end gun violence. steve bashir -- or governor steve bashir said i am a hunter and gun owner, but we all must be open to ideas, and most importantly of our children in schools. during the short session that begins in february. in your estimation and your suggestion, what steps should your state and other states be taking on a local level to end gun violence? >> well, actually, i talked to my mayor fairly frequently, one of the mayors against illegal guns. and unfortunately the general assembly in kentucky has prohibited local options. in fact, in my district in louisville, if police confiscate weapons, they actually have to auction them off, they can't destroy them. so they guarantee there's absolutely no reduction in firearms. that's unfortunate, but it's kind of symptomatic of what we face in the country. there are rural states where there's a great legacy of hunting and gun owners. it's much harder to get anything done that in marineland or new york, where an urban environment is much more dominant. >> sir, i wanted to get your take on a completel
this as they contemplate cutting funds for social security and medicare? an economist with ftn joins us and steve liesman, of course, our own senior economics reporter. good to see you both. lindsey, what kind of a threat is this to the economy? how do you see this? pretty scary stuff actually. >> i really don't see this as that big of a threat to the u.s. economy. i think this store sea little misleading talking about 401(k)s being drained by 5 25%. what this is 25% of new money. on net we're still seeing over 200 billion flow in on an annual basis to 401(k)s, a soyuzable amount of savings and it indicates that individuals look at 401(k)s as a vital vehicle for retirement savings. plus, that 25% is not just cash withdrawals, also loans against the balance, and in some cases it makes perfect sense to borrow against your 401(k). for example, if you're thinking about purchasing a car, taking out an auto loan, why wouldn't you borrow against your 401(k), you end up paying yourself back on the interest on the loan. >> i think that's crazy. i think that's absolutely nuts. where is your retirement money if you

the mayor of los angeles was swinging as they used to say with dan akroyd and steve mart kin on snl. say they were the swinging czechoslovakiian brothers in tight slacks. anything wrong with that? >> no. the city has been better since he has been gone. i wish he moved to mexico. this is like captain hazelwood running the exxon valdez into the ground and saying does any one mind while i leave the ship for a while. the answer is by all means captain. i will buy the first drink on dry land. also in los angeles big hit and run problem. or 50 percent of the actors are hit and runs? what's going on? >> 50 percent, so all of you people that are living somewhere where there are same people living amongst you, image if 50 percent of just the traffic accidents were hit and run. just about 10 percent net. it's about 10 percent nationally. we are at 50 percent. by the way that was as of 09. so we could be over that today. >> so 50 percent of all traffic accidents? the people who caused them zoom away they don't stop? 50 percent. why do you think that is? >> well, they flee. there's a couple of reaso

. steve in illinois, democratic caller. here is debtclock.org, showing that we have reached the ceiling, but we will run out of money in mid february or march. go ahead. caller: yes, i believe in a few things the previous caller said, about giving away free phones. i think people get food stamps plus go to food pantries and get food and they have plenty of food. i have seen them sell their food stamps. there is a lot of waste and fraud and abuse in the lower portion. if you want to take a look and see the waste, fraud, and abuse in the military spending and so forth, it is on both sides of the poincoin. we have to take a look at both sides. today our soldiers are coming home in this wasteful war. they are killing themselves faster than they are killing themselves in afghanistan. host: that is a headline this morning, steve, in the papers. caller: we need to get these veterans some help, too, so they stop killing themselves. it is -- you are drawing matchsticks to see which ones have the shortest ones. we do have to cut out some of the waste. we should go by waste first before we should

representative steve toth is proposing legislation that would make it against the law to enforce federal bans on ammunition or assault weapons in the lone star state, nullification back again. here he is. >> this is a hardened state. it isn't a good place for a criminal to show up and start shooting. we want to make sure that this legislation protects the second amendment gun rights and the tenth amendment, which is state sovereignty rights of texans. >> yahoo. when we start hearing things like state sovereignty, it's like that old pre-civil war talk of nullification. >>> next, former senator jim demint has called obama care, specifically the individual mandate, inconsistent with liberty. demint retired from the senate to head up the heritage foundation, a conservative think tank. the group released this year's index of economic freedom. the top ten have government-run health care. hong kong at number one has a publicly run system with most hospitals owned by the government. and australia, number three on the list, everyone is eligible for a government-run health care provider. in chile, numb
any old party. >> this is a big party. woodruff: matea, what about, you know, we just heard from steve saying it's all about access. we're not really paying attention to the criticism. but are they troubled abou by te fact that this was the president who came into office saying he would do things differently. >> you have to judge them on what they do. it's clear from our reporting that campaign finance reform is not going to be an immediate part of the president's agenda right now. if this was something that was really troubling them i think they probably would be taking action on that front. i think they knew they were going to get criticized for the reversal specifically on corporate donations. but in a lot of ways this president has had to compromise when it comes to money and politics. on several different occasions, he endorsed a super pac that advocated on his behalf in the election after criticizing such groups. i think this is another example like that. >> woodruff: last question. for anybody who is watch ing who is trying to decide whether they should come to the inaugural or
